Maybe it's to hire more people to pedal their gear at local stores to "create more awareness".

IMO- companies and organizations like D.A.R.E. are turning people into civilian police officers. I posted some comments in an "are you being followed"? thread which may help to explain some things.
Hitler did the same thing as do most fascists/communists by enlisting the public in policing themselves. These organizations do very little to stop a problem and their focus is spying, reporting and terrorizing people who take drugs (some of these people should be locked up) which is the very nature of their vigilante work.
Indoctrination is tricky stuff and most people fall victim to this because of a serious need and desire to help victims. These organizations exploit people's heroic fantasies and thats about it.
Very sad and effective trap.

More proof that the language of statistics should be outlawed. I can imagine how many times as kids we were taught things that were just not true - all made possible by 'statistics'. Look at the polling industry, it is amazing what they can get away with saying.
If these 'youth' oriented 'employment' opportunities are all targeted in one area it must be for some purpose. Don't you think?
